Auto Glass Repair: How to Stop Cracks on Windshields from Spreading

The last thing you want for your shiny, new car is a cracked windshield. Sadly, accidents happen, and your windshield may get chipped from a rock falling off of a dump truck, or a small object kicked up by the car ahead of you.

Whatever the cause is, you should never just leave a cracked windshield unattended. Aside from being a hideous sight, it can also put your life in danger when you drive the car. A tiny crack can spread and become a large irreparable mess, and by then, it might be too late to repair it. The best thing to do when you get a cracked windshield is to take your car to an auto glass repair shop immediately. If you can’t make it there fast enough, here are a few tips to prevent the crack from spreading.


Car Window Repair Company Gets Featured in Discovery’s Misfit Garage

Dallas car window repair company Xtreme Autoglass Pros, LLC gets featured in an episode of Discovery Channel’s Misfit Garage, entitled “Meeting the Deadline”. In the episode, Xtreme Autoglass Pros, LLC performed an auto glass replacement on a very rare 1971 Plymouth Barracuda (a.k.a Cuda). The company’s very own Rick Smeltzer, founder and glass repair technician extraordinaire who has worked on all makes and models of classic vehicles, made an appearance on the episode.

Misfit Garage is a reality-television show that airs on the Discovery Channel and features two Dallas-based mechanics, Tom Smith and Jordan Butler (both originally appeared in another show, Gas Monkey Garage). Premiering last year on October 13th, the show is a spin-off of another Discovery Channel show called Fast N’ Loud.
